excellent medical staff/excellent people/great place to live
Interim CEO (Former Employee) – Los Alamos, NM – May 4, 2012
the medical staff had rebelled against the president who was fired. I was hired as the interim CEO. During my seven month stay I was able to organize and motivate the medical staff and got them to help with the management of the hospital. Created a new Hospitalist program wirtth their support;resolved an anesthesia dispute;created a new oncology program, hired a new rheumatologist and general surgeon; and created a physician advisory committee. Also coordinated a successful recruitment for the permanent president.Interestingly, during this transition, a major wildfire consumed the town and I had to evacuate the hospital and reopen it two weeks latter.
